The Wait For Dungeon Of The Endless Is At An End

By Nathan Grayson on December 12th, 2013.

If they had waited for the final version of that ship instead of picking up the alpha on Steam Early Access, I bet it wouldn't have crashed.

I’ve had my eye on Dungeon of the Endless ever since its mysterrrrrrrrrious “what’s behind the door” reveal campaign (which actually ended up being rather clever). The randomized roguelike-like dungeon defender is about preparation and exploration, with players defending a generator using all sorts of tools and emplacements while cautiously edging through doors that hide writhing horrors of increasing power. You also meet and team up with all sorts of deranged sci-fi/fantasy prisoners along the way. Basically, it’s RPS Advent Calendar: The Game, only less fatal. Oh, and it’s a really pretty, highly unexpected offshoot of Endless Space, a wonderful 4X strategy. I can play it right now via Steam Early Access, and so I shall.

Endless Endlessness Pt 2: Dungeon Of The Endless

By Nathan Grayson on August 24th, 2013.

What was behind the door? More doors, basically.

The endless endlessness, it never ends! In the beginning, there was Endless Space, and it was endlessly space-y. Recently, we also told you of Endless Legend, which is another 4X strategy set in the same universe, only all fantasy-fied. But let’s not forget about Dungeon of the Endless, which Amplitude teased shortly before getting sucked into the time-distorting, endlessly cacophonous Gamescom hypehole. At that point, all we had to go on was a rather painfully un-endless trailer, which cut off right before we found out what was HASHTAG BEHIND THE DOOR WOOOOOOO. But now… oh, now we know. And I can guarantee that you will be shocked and surprised probably.

Endless Space Devs Reveal Dungeon Of The Endless

By Nathan Grayson on August 13th, 2013.

What's behind the door? I bet it's not monsters. It's never monsters.

Space is ever-expanding. It is, for all intents and purposes, endless. Thus, when Amplitude asserted as much with much-loved 4x strategy Endless Space, I was totally on board. “Space? Endlessness?” I said. “Yep, all checks out. Looks like I won’t have to get the Title Police involved after all. You folks behave yourselves now, ya hear?” And then I strolled off into the hungry hills, ever vigilant for a new entry in the Kingdom Hearts franchise. But dungeons? Those can’t just go on forever. I mean, it’d defeat the purpose. Why lock some doer of grievous wrongs up in a never-ending expanse? “You are hereby confined to infinity. There are no limits on what you can accomplish. Good luck, sucker.” I might just have to let Dungeon of the Endless off the hook, though, because of reasons. Mainly, it looks pretty great – even if we don’t know a whole lot about it yet.
